Don’t understand the attitude on politics

Letter to the Editor

It seems the Democrat Party doesn’t handle losing very well: protests, marches, violence in the streets, etc. I don’t recall seeing such things when Barack Obama was elected and re-elected. The Republicans didn’t do these things, even though they could have. Facebook is full of disparaging words that vilify President Trump. Why? Do they really believe Hillary Clinton was for the people? She isn’t. Never was, nor will ever be. Could it be that the marchers and protestors are being paid to do their protesting? Possibly by the Democrat Party? I can understand welfare recipients not wanting their gravy train derailed.

I don’t understand today’s attitude about our national politics. During his campaign, Donald Trump was asked a question concerning religious freedom. He said if he was elected, anyone could worship Jesus anytime and anywhere in the U.S. Barack and Hillary told people to keep their religion at home. The Bible clearly says, “You shall know them by their works.” What part of that don’t they understand?

Those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Think about it, folks. There are those around this area who wouldn’t support Donald Trump, and don’t even want to give him a chance. Even Hillary said he deserves a chance.
